I thought the color was somewhere between dark gold and brandy. The nose was packed with marshmallows, vanilla, sugar, and latex paint. I like the smell of latex paint on a hot summer day, and that's what I found wafting from the glass from about one foot away. The palate was filled with wonderful toffee, wood smoke, and brown sugar. The finish was slightly oily, short, and peppery on the end. To me, this Macallan 12 is a good, basic sherry cask whisky. Not too complex, but not too shy about asserting itself from the glass.

I found this quite fudgey, sweet and well rounded.
